A Fair Work Commission review panel has overturned a decision by deputy president Gerard Boyce to approve two enterprise agreements for employees of BHP’s Operations Services subsidiary. The Construction, Forestry, Maritime, Mining & Energy Union is among four unions that appealed against the December 2019 ruling. National secretary Tony Maher claims that BHP had intended to use the Operations Services business to reduce wages and conditions in the mining sector. The full bench of the FWC will decide whether to approve the disputed enterprise agreements.
